It will be hard to match last week’s numbers posted in the second week of Prep Fantasy Football. Especially since it was one of the highest-scoring weeks in the contest’s five-year history.
This week’s ballot will be a bit more challenging with such a wide variety of players across all classes. Only one of the three quarterbacks on this week’s ballot is a returning starter. The list of running backs has two of last years top rushers in the area last year but both of them will face pretty stiff opposition. There isn’t much separation in the list of receivers this week either.
